California Taxpayers pay $21 Million for Anti-Trump Lawsuits
Article from The Daily Caller by David Krayden.
California’s penchant for suing the Trump administration has reportedly cost the state’s taxpayers $21 million over the past three years, according to a Sacramento news station.
The state’s activist Attorney General Xavier Becerra has initiated lawsuits to fight the federal government on a variety of ideological issues ranging from the president’s travel ban to promoting sanctuary cities, amassing the bill since Trump took office in 2017, FOX 40 reported Friday.
Becerra even sued the government to dispute there being a border crisis. He recently challenged the Trump administration’s changes to the Endangered Species Act. The attorney general has also waged war on U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, threatening to prosecute any business that cooperates with the federal agency.
Republican strategist Tim Rosales suggested there’s more to Becerra’s motivation than just an ideological divide and that the state attorney general is building a political profile for himself.
